Building Connections beyond Stereotypes

by Kerry Cue

One of the great joys of Posting on INSTAGRAM is coming across enthusiastic book groups with hilarious names. Boozy Book Babes is a favourite.

Here is the comment about The Sunday Story Club by the Boozy Book Babes on INSTAGRAM:

‘Beautiful cover! Would it be too ironic for our book club to read this book?’

Touché. The Sunday Story Club is like a book club without books. Whereas a book club asks ‘What do you read?’ in The Sunday Story Club we would ask ‘Why do you read?’ This last question opens up a different and deeper conversation. It is this deeper conversation that helps build connections beyond stereotypes.

Building Connections. Creating your own Community

by Kerry Cue

We wrote The Sunday Story Club to encourage others to build connections through   deeper conversations. It is these connections that create a community. Doris and I have been running a story salon for 5 years and have built a community based on empathy and understanding because we took the time to stop and listen, really listen without interruption, to others as they told their real-life stories of love, loss, and resilience.

It seems appropriate to talk about community following an interview I did with Jeff Bullen on Community Radio RTR FM, Perth. Audio link here.
